Rich descriptive language takes the reader into the hearts of an orphan and her supporters and through the Berkshire Mountains and the glitterati of New York City. (Bright Face of Danger) is a page turner that gives a weekend off to anyone who picks it up. The poignant tale is of a beautiful young farm girl with the soul of a poet left orphaned and cared for by those who see her as the special person she is. She is drawn into a different world, different lifestyle and the dangers of predatory men who see something other than the poetry in the girl. Strong writing, a compelling, galloping story, poignant moments of the heart and gripping moments of human turmoil all make this a "must read."
